Rattlestick Theater to Host Community Conversation With Cast of THE GETT

Rattlestick Theater will present a community conversation following the 7:00pm performance of The Gett on Friday, December 2nd, 2022.

Moderated by Executive Artistic Director Daniella Topol, the conversation will include Ben Edelman (The Chosen, Angels in America, Instinct, The Good Wife), Liba Vaynberg (NBC's New Amsterdam, CBS's Madam Secretary, HBO's The Plot Against America, and The Deuce), Luis Vega (Blue Bloods, Change Agent, Hindsight, The Good Fight) and Jennifer Westfeldt (Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, Holding the Baby, Kissing Jessica Stein).
Written by emerging playwright Liba Vaynberg, The Gett is a deeply personal story that raises key questions about love, loss, and personal regeneration post-crisis. The play follows IDA as she navigates her relationships with her community, her religion, and herself in the wake of her divorce from her husband, BAAL. The Gett takes a bold, authentic look at complex issues in contemporary American Judaism by reimagining sacred texts in personal and poetic ways.

The Gett is co-commissioned by Brooklyn Jews, Congregation Beth Elohim, and Rattlestick Theater.
